At Telos Alliance, we know that you want to be the ATSC 3.0 / NextGen TV expert for your media company, transitioning to this new standard with ease. In order to do that, it’s important to look at both sides of the ATSC 3.0 picture—audio and video.
The problem is, as more audio features are introduced, multipurpose devices such as video encoders won’t be able to take full advantage of them, denying your audience the full impact of ATSC 3.0. We believe you shouldn't have to struggle to deliver the full benefits of ATSC 3.0 audio, which is why we've created these Linear Acoustic and Minnetonka products to enable ATSC 3.0 workflows and get you set up quickly.
Only Telos Alliance has the tools you need to bring ATSC 3.0 audio to life.
Use upmixing to get an immersive audio service on the air quickly while you’re planning out and implementing a true immersive audio workflow. UPMAX ISC upmixes from stereo or surround to immersive audio, giving audiences a consistent soundfield for a better audio experience. Learn more.
Get on air quickly with ATSC 3.0! LA-5300 accepts a Dolby® Digital input from an ATSC 1 service and transcodes it directly into Dolby AC-4, or encodes Dolby AC-4 directly from PCM. It also inserts watermarking into the audio stream and upmixes content to provide a consistent soundfield output. LA-5300 has everything you need to deliver ATSC 3.0 audio. Learn more.
Deliver an amazing Dolby Atmos® experience where Dolby AC-4 is not required. The LA-5291 provides encoding and decoding of Dolby ED2 for signal contribution and distribution, and the encoding of the Dolby Atmos signal (in Dolby Digital Plus) for the final transmission to the viewer. Learn more.
In TV Technology's ebook on ATSC 3.0, our own Larry Schindel talks about the benefits of ATSC 3.0 audio and NextGen TV, why you can't afford to ignore this part of the equation, and the right tools from Linear Acoustic to win with ATSC 3.0.
This handbook provides ATSC 3.0 broadcasters in North America with the documentation, support, and resources required to move from AC-3 to AC-4 audio in the transition from ATSC 1.0 to ATSC 3.0, with a specific focus on the practical and technical considerations integrating AC-4 into ATSC 3.0 workflows.
New gear, including the Linear Acoustic UPMAX ISC, and enhanced techniques mark the immersive evolution in broadcast TV.
Immersive audio (Dolby® Atmos in North America) is one new feature that NextGen TV Audio technologies deliver to broadcast systems like ATSC 3.0. Immersive adds additional channels overhead and creates a compelling, all-encompassing audible experience that makes your audience feel like they have been pulled right into the middle of the program.
Audio codecs used in ATSC 3.0 (Dolby AC-4 or MPEG-H from Fraunhofer) also include technology to enhance the dialog, making it easier for the Hearing Impaired, or those watching late at night with family members asleep in the house, to understand the program.
